Happy birdday

















I think I dare to say that spring has finally arrived to my part of the world. With the sun out and the birds singing I got inspired to make a card with one of my newest (and soon to be favourite) sweetpea stamp. I just LOVE the birdtheme. The image I have here is called Peony and it's one of the newer ones by ching chou kuik. It's from plate 97.

















The papers I have are from die cuts with a view Mariposa line. I got them from my sweetheart after his trip to the US :) Unfortunately the pics don't do the papers justice. They are very glittery and the birdcage background is in gold foil. As the papers were so beautiful I wanted to keep the layout simple and make them work with the image. After choosing the papers I coloured the image with promarkers to match. The text is handwritten. Oh, and I added some gold glitterglue to her flower to make it match the papers and stand out a bit.

Hei Karina!:)
tusen takk for kjempe koselig kommentar! Jeg blir så glad!!:) Ang. akvarell papirer, så er det bare en type som er brukbar, synes jeg:). Det er Canson/Monval enten 280gr, eller 300gr! Jeg liker nå for tiden best 280gr, og da setter ikke Distress "streken" seg fast i papiret liksom:)).
Nå har jeg fått meg Prisma colors, så jeg øver og øver på disse,hihi.

Jeg er såå glad for at jeg fikk være med i Sweet Pea's DT, og er veldig takknemmelig for den flotte velkomsten jeg har fått..og Lynette er bare herlig skjønn!!:)
Gleder meg til å jobbe i team med dere videre, og hente maaasse inspirasjon!:)
Du er forresten veldig dyktig!!:) Jeg har så mye å lære, men får ta tiden til hjelp:) Nå er det akkurat 1 år siden jeg startet med kort/fargelegging, og Rome ble ikke bygget på 1 dag!:))
Ha en koselig kveld!:)
Klem, Ellen
